Harrods, Ltd., London. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. A rare, original Bobby Jones Golf Flicker Book. This is book 11c and covers "Out of the Rough and Putt". Harrods, Ltd. produced a series of flicker books in the 1920's covering a variety of sports. The first 6 were on Cricket, the next 4 on Tennis, the next 4 on Golf and then finally one each on Lacrosse, Football, Swimming, Hockey and Greyhound Racing. A flicker book is a book that you flip through and by doing so it creates animation. This book shows Bobby Jones's swing in motion. We believe Bobby has the best pure golf swing of all time.
This book illustrates the fluidity of his motion. The four golf books produced in this series were: 11a Bobby Jones, Drive and Mashie 11b Bobby Jones, Brassie and Iron 11c Bobby Jones, Out of the Rough and Putt 12 C.J.H. Tolley, Drive and Iron Shots. These books are exceeding rare, especially with the covers in tact and with all the pages in place. The book is tiny, measuring only 2 inches by 3 inches. The book works both forward and backward. The book is in tact and in very good condition overall. Original bookseller's name on the back cover "Fortnum & Mason, Ltd" in London. D & J J9940
